Let's give 'The A-Team' a Sequel!

Dear Reader, As an avid fan of the TV show, and the recent remake, I'm destroyed to find out that due to poor advertizing of the film at the time, 'The A-Team' (2010) movie is not to be given a sequel. The movie was released around the same time as the World Cup, and as Mr Neeson rightly says below, that is no doubt a factor in the film's poor performance at the box office on it's first week. Personally, I found the film very enjoyable, as did many other people. Sadly this has not reflected in t

Stop selling ThunderCRACKER toys

This is an online petition to stop Hasbro from selling toys with racist slurs. It all started last week when my husband and son got back from the store. My son proudly showed me his new toy, a blue jet robot.  He told me that its name is "Thundercracker." I was taken aback.  If you don't know, "Cracker" is a racist slur used against people of caucasian lineage. It's the equivalent of the "N" word. I told my son that it's not right and we gave the blue jet a new name.   I couldn't think of a reas

We, the fans of the Bay City Rollers, have an idea for a concert reunion that would be beneficial to band members, as well as all fans worldwide.  This concert would be done as a pay-per-view event, but because it would be done online, it would be seen the world over, bringing in millions of dollars for one concert.  The concert would also be recorded and released on DVD, as well as generating sales of tee-shirts, posters, and tour books.  Please understand that, for many of us, this may be our

STOP HASBRO FROM CORRUPTING KIDS WITH TOYS

This is an online petition to stop a corrupt toy company from making toys with harmful names that can subliminally corrupt our children's minds. I first encountered this when my kid got a toy robot that turns into a blue jet called "Thundercracker."  Cracker is a racial slur used to disparage Caucasians.  I started an online petition for this, but as I did more research, it seems Hasbro is hell bent on putting bad ideas into our children's brains. Besides, Hasbro's corporate lackeys have flooded
